Hello World!

Well, The West Wing season finale aired here in good old Aussie land on Sunday night, which will probably be the last time I see the series until the 22nd century, if Channel 9 has anything to do with it.

Fortunately, it was an excellent episode - subdued, but certainly very powerful. And just like 'In Excelsis Deo' and 'Noel,' it contained a wonderful 'set piece' overlayed by music. That's the sort of think that's liable to have me glued to the screen over and over again.

I was particularly impressed with the actress who played the young Mrs. Landingham - she had her counterpart's mannerisms down pat. It's just a pity that I'm going to have to wait so long for the conclusion. At least I'm doing better than Christian in The Netherlands, where the show was pulled after season one.

Actually, I've been treated to two wonderful 'set pieces' this week - there was one on Boston Public as well. That's another show that just keeps getting better and better.

My final fantasy this week, however, would be to go to one of those big-screen 'Broken Bow' showings in the US. In this wonderful land of ours, we probably won't see it on television for a least another 2-3 years (again thanks to the wonderful Channel 9). The last time I caught up with Janeway & co. aboard Voyager we were only up to the end of season five.

Speaking of which, I've often thought that Neelix should have started a zoo on board Voyager. He could have had llamas, sheep, wombats as well as lots of exotic Delta Quadrant species. It might have provided many interesting storylines, I think.
